Judy Holliday, starlet, singer, beauty of an era long gone but not forgotten. Judy was born in 1921 and graduated high school in 1938. Her IQ? it was pretty high. 1721. Not bad for a beautiful lady.
Too young to go to University, she became a switchboard operator. A normal job for a girl in those days. (Truth be told, I secretly wanted to be one myself.) What no one knew, not yet anyway, was that she was a terrific script writer, and a far out singer.
She soon got the career she wanted. Prove herself, she did; on screen, off screen, and on Broadway.
Here's a bit of Judy Holliday for your reminiscing pleasure.
